Most Wanted Loves Black Eyewear

Thanks for the great article Most Wanted!

In the midst of the rectangular repetitiveness seen in your average local opticians, Black Eyewear is an oasis of carefully curated, on-trend optical styles.

Long gone are the days glasses were simply bound by the restrictions of NHS fodder. With such a large selection of new and pre-owned vintage frames online, all you need is your prescription and a willingness to browse – with eyewear just another outlet of fashionable expression.


MW is very excited then to present the online one-stop-shop for retro inspired frames, available at Vintage by Robert Roope. Craving prescription frames that make a subtle statement, this brilliant selection are inspired by jazz musicians, actors and stars of bygone eras – think singer Buddy Holly, saxophonist John Coltrane, guitarist Django Reinhardt and vocalist Peggy Lee to name but a few.

With frames available with prescription, blank and tinted sunglasses lenses, no wonder London’s finest including Fearne Cotton and Sienna Miller have been spotted sporting pairs.
